ALICE CORDER / JESS QUINN / DANIEL BARNARD28 July - 31 August
Corder is inspired by story telling, particularly superstitions,
traditions and passed down wisdoms. Working in a mixed media of
painting, drawing and vintage print she visually re-interprets these old
stories and proverbs.
Jess Quinn trained as a painter at Glasgow
School of Art. She works in a variety of mediums combining 'high' and
'low' art, working with textiles, embroidery, knitting and colour that
are historically associated with craft and women's work/ pastimes plus
an interest in early cartoons, advertisement's, cheap plastic toys,
movies, manga and animation. Childhood and toys are constant themes,
with the darker side of fairy tales being of particular interest.
Daniel Barnard lives in St Ives and works at the St Ives school of painting.
also works from his studio in Newlyn. Reclaiming, empowering,
reinventing that which is thought to be disposable, not wanted, unsound
or not deemed worthy. Whether that is physically or psychologically.

George Mckenna1 - 28 Sept, Main Bar
artist driven by colour and light, George McKenna presents a collection
of paintings on the theme of reflection. There is a clear passion for
the process of painting that runs through his artwork, with bold brush
strokes applied impasto, with a sculptural energy. Each canvas evolves
under McKenna’s keen skills as an observational artist, particularly
with this series of searching work, as he discovers the patterns and
trends of the reflected world.
Not one to get caught up in
complexity, McKenna’s work is a glorious and unrestrained simplification
of nature, paired down to the essential. Evoking the strength and
beauty of nature, in all its vibrancy and colour, each artwork is a
wonder in its own right.
Katy Christianson10 September - 29 October, The Snug
Our first exhibition in The Snug, our newly revamped room, off our Main Bar.
Katy is an illustrator living and working in Bristol. She produces mostly black and white, very detailed images, and is inspired by mountains, crowded cities and the night sky.
She loves to work just with a rotring pen and some blank paper and nothing else, but is beginning to experiment with colour and is devoted to screen printing.
LOCH NESS & FRIENDS present PSYCHEDELIA29 September - 2 November, Main Bar
down the monster rabbit hole into a dream like dimension where anything
is possible and colour has no boundaries. His army of psychedelic
characters playfully disorientate you to a place that oozes a twisted
harmony and Zen. Influenced heavily by music of a rock era gone by The
Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin & The Rolling Stones. Taking the
viewer on a trippy ride of banjo playing, guitar strumming, monster
drumming feel good absurdity.
Come join us for an Exhibition of
new Solo work by Loch Ness but also featuring original collaborations
from Cheba, Dave Bain, Fun Skull, Jonathan Ball, Mr Penfold, Oliver
Hibert, Oli Timmins,Paul Monsters, Sepr & 3Dom, Steve Silverwood,
Spzero76 & Bill Giles, Tom J Newell and more to be confirmed.
